If you have lost faith or have never known it, or if you have ever wondered "What can religion offer?" here are wise and thoughtful answers. With the warmth, insight, and understanding that distinguished his phenomenal bestsellers "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" and "How Good Do We Have to Be?, " Harold Kushner addresses a critical issue in the lives of many: a spiritual hunger that no personal success can feed. Rabbi Kushner shows how religious commitment does have a place in our daily lives, filling a need for connection, joy, and community. For anyone who has ever wanted a more fulfilling life or wished to make a difference in the lives of others...for anyone who has ever felt guilty, afraid, or alone...Rabbi Kushner shares a path to faith that offers new sources of comfort and strength for all of us. Powerful, provocative, and persuasive, "Who Needs God" is a message of universal appeal.show more

Review quote

"Newsweek" In "Who Needs God, " Kushner glides thoughtfully and literately from Elie Wiesel to William James to African mythology to make his case for God's role in our lives. The most compelling argument, not surprisingly, is...that only religion provides answers that enable people to confront their mortality.show more
